Sitting here by the fireplace, sipping a rum and coke, life is still good.
Sure work is hard, but it’s satisfying. When we finished up with all the Thanksgiving festivities Wolf and I looked at each other… Now what? So we decided to work while everyone else took time off. It was a great chance to work in a quiet house uninterrupted. We put 50 gallons of paint on the ceilings and walls of the house we’re working on.. so far.
The ceilings are all 10 feet tall, with a few rooms that have cathedral ceiling that are around 18 feet tall at the peak. I think it’s safe to say that my left arm s going to fall off from cutting in and my legs and feet are in a permanent state of cramping from being on ladders and scaffolding.
My first thought tonight, this drink really eases the pain. No wonder so many painters are drunkards LOL
Tomorrow can’t come too soon.. well, maybe it can. We have to be up around 4:30 to be on the road by 5:30 in order to make it to the job with one coffee stop by 6:45… that would be right around sunrise. With the days being shorter we have to start super early or we run out of light too fast. The job gets too dark to keep painting around 4:15. Sure we could turn on lights and keep going, but painting is best done by natural lighting.
My second thought tonight… I really hate that alarm sound… BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP! Although no other sound could possibly wake me up at 4:30am, I wish I was able to wake up to something a bit more soothing. You know something that pulls you out of your deep sleep and keeps you nice and calm. Maybe that’s why I have the annoying alarm… nice and calm would be easy to fall back to sleep to.
Have a great weekend everyone!
